Differences in white matter abnormalities across epilepsy types

Takeaway

  • Individuals with epilepsy displayed white matter abnormalities in the corpus callosum, cingulum, and external capsule, with differing severity across epilepsy types.

Why this matters

    While epilepsy was initially classified as a “grey matter” disease, studies have shown that white matter alterations are also linked to epilepsy; however, few studies to date have analyzed this connection with a large sample size, making it difficult to draw conclusions.
